TEN PIN BOWLING.

 There were 8 of us at ten pin bowling this month, 7 players and 1

spectator. We all had a good time and enjoyed the mince pies and biscuits

 thanks to Marion and Dot. John G had the highest score among the men

with 169 and Jackie excelled herself with 114, with Maureen a close second

 with 97, and then Dot with 94. It is good fun and we would like some more
